Population Health

The Bassett Research Institute was selected by the New York State Department of Health (DOH) to organize and facilitate population health efforts in a five county region of central New York as part of the DOH Population Health Improvement Program (PHIP). It is the job of the PHIP to help New York communities to begin addressing the health behaviors, the environmental and the socioeconomic conditions that have proven to be the major factors determining a population’s health.

The Mohawk Valley Population Health Program (MVPHIP) serves Fulton, Montgomery, Herkimer, Schoharie and Otsego Counties.PHIP2.pngThe MVPHIP is charged with providing a forum in which stakeholders including county health departments, hospitals, insurers, agencies and a wide range of other interested parties can review the region’s health status and define key priority areas. Decisions are to be based upon information relating to these counties derived from extensive data gathering and analyses by the Research Institute. The MVPHIP then stimulates and supports strategic planning for identifying, sharing, disseminating and helping to implement best practices and local strategies that promote population health and reduce health care disparities in the five county region.
